? >> reporter: good evening, diane. yes, that performance by the president that one former democratic party chairman referred to as lethargic, disinterested and passive, was the talk of the campaign today. campaign aides say they don't have any explanation as to why the president was the way he was, other than a general inclination to play it safe, but however cold his performance may have left even some supporters last night, today, the president came out with some fire. before a crowd of 12,000 in denver, the president tried to turn his opponent's polished debate performance into proof of his phoniness. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year, promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. >> reporter: but in the audience, many of the president's supporters expressed bewilderment at his passive performance last night. >> i felt like he should have been more aggressive. >> i didn't understand the strategy. i thought, you know, i wondered what was go

." and diane swonk, chief economist at mesirow financial. diane, start with you, was this big drop in the unemployment number a surprise or wt's goinon? >> well, certainly it was a surprise. we can see allots of volatility in this number from a month-to-month basis. we saw the big increase in employment. we saw big decrease in unemployment. but over time both this report and the other reports that's the payroll survey tend to converge. and i think that's important to remember. it's also important to remember that in general a 2/10 movement or 3/10 movement in unemployment rate actually isn't statistically significant. i know it makes the headlines but 7.8% is not all that different from 8% or 7. on a statistal basis. so i think that's also important to remember in this day, it is highly volatile with a wide range on what is really significant. >> brown: of course it makes for a big headline in a political campaign but before we head to the politics fill in a little bit more about these two surveys because it is very con sues-- confusing, the household and business survey. >> as dia
